Looking for a win-win? How about this — sell your stuff and help a hurricane victim.
AdYoYo, a Las Vegas company allowing users to easily buy and sell wares with video clips, will send $1 to help victims of hurricanes Irma and Harvey for every copy of its app downloaded through Oct. 1.
Just download the free app then, if you wish, share it with your friends and family. AdYoYo hopes to raise $100,000 this way.
To offer further relief, AdYoYo will collect clothes, shoes, blankets, pillows, diapers, toiletries, inflatable mattresses, box fans, work gloves, and cleaning supplies to send to hurricane victims. Drop these supplies at 8335 W. Flamingo Road, Suite 201, and Adyoyo’s team will get them where they need to go.
“We have a lot of users in Florida and we want to show them — and everyone — that their situation matters,” AdYoYo President Christopher Kelly said, “and that even a small tech startup all the way in Las Vegas can step in and make a difference.”
Besides its seeing-is-believing videos, AdYoYo helps buyers and sellers connect through real-time chat. AdYoYo aims to ensure that what users get is what they see, fraud-free.
